Reets Drying Academy hosts IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist Course

Thursday, January 28, 2010 SHARPSBURG, GA — Reets Drying Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, was host to the first ever Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Commercial Drying Specialist Course in the U.S. on January 11-15, according to a press release.

According to the release, the course, led by instructor Scott Mims, instructed professionals on how to manage, document and handle large water losses in a commercial setting, and featured a unique hands on training portion in which students learned in a large hotel in a water damage simulation creating a drying plan of action.

Jeremy Reets, founder of Reets Drying Academy, said: “Until this point there wasn’t a standardized course offered from the IICRC covering the details of large losses from start to finish.”
The hands on training proved to be a highlight of the course for students, the release stated.
“The students were blown away by the opportunity to actually be in a facility, put their hands on the blueprints and build a strategy for drying a multi-story commercial loss,” said Reets.

According to Mims, the course is designed for businesses of all sizes, the release stated.
Mims said: “This is not just a course about drying hotels and high rises; it also encompasses commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential water damages. Everyone can benefit from this course. No matter how big or small their company is.”

The IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist course will be offered again July 26-30 at Reets Drying Academy, the release added.
